Peach and Basil Salsa. At its summer fresh best! This salsa is so easy to make and is terrific on grilled chicken or pork as well as summer salads, as a wonderfully flavourful alternative to oily salad dressing.
For a savoury use of one of my favourite summer fruits, try this amazing Peach Basil Salsa.
You may have noticed that I have a real love of peaches. There are quite a number of fantastic peach desserts on this website but one of my favourite salsas is also made from one of summer’s perfect fruits. The ingredients here all work together extremely well. From the fresh grated ginger to the sweet, spicy sriracha sauce, they all meld together particularly well.
We use this salsa on its own with some multi-grain baked tortilla chips for a healthy snack or great party food addition. It also goes wonderfully well with grilled fish, pork chops and as the photo below shows on barbecued chicken. We used our delicious Blueberry Barbecue Sauce on this occasion, which was a particularly good flavour combination.
